Wellington Speech & Debate is entering a BOLD NEW WORLD in 2020-21. We still have no clue if we will be meeting in person, online, or a blended hybrid. Most (maybe all) tournaments will be virtual the first semester (and we’ll see what happens in terms of the second semester as we progress). There’s a lot of unknowns; however, one thing Coach Gaba does know is that he will need a lot of help from the entire varsity program in working with novices.
Here are the 2020-21 Wellington Speech & Debate student officers. All should be enrolled in the honors debate program next fall, which makes Coach Gaba very happy. Congratulations!
